Do you like Coffee? I sure do. I especially love my Kuerig Coffeemaker for its convenience, ease of clean up, and the seemingly endless variety of flavors and drink types available in those little pods. I love it! But I also love the Earth, and the amount of waste that accumulates in landfills from those same little pods is not lost on me. A couple of years ago, I actually purchased a set of reusable plastic coffee pods, which can be filled with your own ground coffee, and then washed and reused again and again. They work fine, but the amount of sediment left in the bottom of the coffee cup after drinking is unappealing to me. Faced with this conundrum, I went back to the regular disposable pods. Sorry, Earth.
Recently, I was contacted by Tayst Coffee Roasters, a subscription coffee service that delivers high-quality, gourmet coffee pods and supplies directly to your home or office. Tayst is concerned with sustainability, and so all of their pods, bags, cups and related packaging are fully compostable and thus biodegrade. It is a cause for excitement! Tayst sent me a sample box of their delicious coffee to try out for review, and here’s what was in that box:
The Nespresso boutique, located on southeast the corner of Prince and Mercer in Soho, really went the extra mile on their Mothers’ Day, decorating, adorning facade of the building in oversize, Pink Blossoms. Happy Mother’s Day!
Do you like Coffee? I sure do. Staples just sent me this crazy cute little Keurig K10 Mini Plus Coffee Maker to use and review for The Gig, and I am loving the heck out if it.
The Keurig coffee makers also sent me a box of assorted Kuerig K-Cup Packs containing many different flavored coffees, and a fantastic “That was Easy” button, which I have wanted to own for, literally, years. So, Christmas in June for Gail.
I Love this Thing
The Keurig also comes with a sample pack of six K-Cups to get you started — especially nice if you should receive this item as a gift!
Mmm…Donut Shop Coffee…
I have previously wanted to own a Keurig, but was always held back by the fact that I have very limited counter space in my kitchen (seriously, you would be surprised) and they usually look pretty big. But this K10 Mini Plus is the perfect size for a coffee-loving single gal with a shortage of kitchen counter space. How cute is this little thing? Answer: So cute!
However, along the lines of having very little counter space, it was just minutes after removing the Kuerig from its packaging that I discovered a bit of an issue, shall we say, as seen in the photo below.
